Discussion...
quick update to increase rain/snow chances in the south and bring
in snow wording a few hours earlier. Still not expecting much in
the way of accumulations, but could see some on grass, roofs, and
other elevated surfaces. Have also expanded Special Weather Statement area to go along
with this though process. Winter Weather Advisory still looks on
track for the smokies, and still have better chances for
accumulations in the higher elevations.
